Although Facebook is one of the largest social networks and offers significant benefits, there are also many risks involved. In it, the most notable is that users are at risk of losing their accounts permanently or losing personal information.
Be careful when sharing personal information on Facebook to avoid being stolen by bad guys.
The risk of losing personal information from Facebook
In 2019, Facebook once discovered a vulnerability that exposed millions of users’ phone numbers. By early April 2021, Business Insider reported that this social network was stolen by hackers with phone numbers and personal data of more than 553 million users across 106 countries.
Although Facebook later confirmed that the stolen data is “old” and has been resolved since 2019, many experts still warn users at risk of losing important personal information. .
For Facebook users in Vietnam, on the evening of August 17, many users’ accounts were locked for the reason of “violating community standards”. These accounts are then told they will have 30 days to object to the decision and if not approved will be permanently locked.
Many Facebook accounts in Vietnam are locked for violating community standards.
According to some sources, the cause of this is because the locked accounts are related to a sensitive video of children. Most of them are shared and sent via private messages.
After the above incident, many Facebook accounts, groups or pages have posted about how they can help unlock Facebook accounts for locked people. Of course, people who want to unlock need to spend an amount ranging from 300-700,000 VND.
According to Mr. Ngo Minh Hieu – an expert at the National Cyber Security Monitoring Center (NCSC), under the Information Security Department – Ministry of Information and Communications, asking a third party to unlock Facebook for you is very important. dangerous and users should exercise caution. Because, they are completely likely to lose important personal information when using these services.
Because, most unlocking services require users to provide personal information, images of identification documents such as identity cards, citizen identification or passports, etc., for the reason that they must use the personal information to declare to Facebook.
Therefore, except for having solid information about a 3rd party, users should actively submit an appeal directly to Facebook. Thereby, it is possible to avoid the case of bad guys taking advantage to cheat to get personal information, data or even appropriate property.
